[Ubuntu-bugcontrol] I have written a draft for the Reporting Bugs guide

On one hand we have meritocracies, like GNOME, where some people have 
the final saying about what things are going to be.

On the other we have democracies, like Debian, where all the decisions 
shall be agreed before taken on.

The first one has the drawback of usually ignoring individual needs, and 
favoring some people's agendas over the others. The second one usually 
ends in long discussions, some clueless people included in brain 
surgery, and eventually in very little job done.

What I'm proposing is that we take an hybrid approach. That we come and 
agree in what the output of the work should be, and what's important for 
everyone. But that we trust that the person in charge of that will come 
with a solution themselves.

Once the work is done we can simply see if it fits the agreed output 
well enough to start with. And if it doesn't to correct it till it does.

After that we can polish the small details with real world feedback. We 
can provide a link to ask to the Quality mailing list, and if someone 
seems to have recurring trouble with something in the manual, just 
correct it immediately.

Have third opinions if you wish:

- Steve Jobs, founder of Apple:

- Richard Branson, founder of Virgin:

- 37 Signals, creators of Ruby on Rails:

- Robert Kiyosaki, rich and author of the bestseller "Rich Dad Poor Dad"
